  1. Devastating news. RIP
  2. It's difficult to predict which starting XI Warburton will go with for this game. One thing is for sure and that's that the midfield of Halliday, Barton and Rossiter does not work. You have to go with 2 at most from those 3. I think Warburton will stick with Rossiter and Barton so that means Halliday drops to the bench. Given the impact that he had from the bench on Saturday I'd say that Krancjar will get the nod ahead of Halliday. The defence picks itself at the moment with no more centre halves being linked and Senderos still training but not signed. The front 3 is harder to pick; I'm not sure if Garner will start, I'd be inclined to think that Warburton will give him the last half an hour. I think McKay and Forrester will start on the wings with Garner coming on for Miller (or vice versa depending on who starts). Team lineup - Foderingham Tavernier Kiernan Wilson Wallace Rossiter Barton Kranjcar Forrester Miller McKay
  3. I watched the majority of Celtic's 5-0 win against Motherwell the other week and McGhee's side, as expected, lay down to them. He changed his formation to a 5-4-1 with Johnson supporting McDonald when they rarely attacked. McGhee sacrificed one of his biggest attacking threats in Lionel Ainsworth and this allowed Celtic to dominate possession cause Motherwell countless problems. I'll be surprised if he sets his team up like this against us tomorrow. He will revert to the 4-3-3 and look to hit us on the break with their pace down the wings. When we faced them in July they tried to expose Tavernier and had their finishing been better they would have scored one or two goals. Now that Barton and Rossiter look like guaranteed starters for us just now I would imagine that they'll cover both full backs when they are causing Well's defence problems going forward. With the Lescott deal off and the Garner deal not due to be complete in time for the game I would imagine we will start with the same XI that beat Dundee 2-1. The only issues I have with this is the balance in midfield. Andy Halliday didn't have his greatest game and was subbed after an hour, but he doesn't offer us the drive that a Holt or Windass offers (with both unfortunately injured at the moment). So I expect Halliday to start with Kranjcar coming on after an hour again. But what I would like to see Warburton do would be to put Forrester into that position and start either Dodoo or MoH on the right. We are all still waiting on MoH to show us some of the form he had at St Johnstone but his final ball just hasn't been up to scratch so far. He's better suited in a counter attacking team with his pace rather than a team with a possession based philosophy such as ours. Prediction - Rangers 2-1 Motherwell, Miller double.
  4. Left out of the Wednesday squad for tonight's game.
  5. When was the last time time a team were really shitting themselves coming to Ibrox? For far too long teams have come to Ibrox thinking they can get a result as they knew the team in blue weren't fit to be wearing the jersey. That is going to change this season. Teams will now come to Ibrox and try and keep the score down rather than thinking they have a chance of getting a result. We have a lot to sort out in defence, but this team will only get better in attack. I bet Peterhead are shitting it already.
  6. Folk on Twitter saying it is being rumoured in Austria. Probably a heap of shite to be honest.
  7. I think we will see another 3 or 4 signings before the window shuts. I am happy to see what Warburton and Weir can do with the players they inherited. You would hope they could get more out of the likes of Law, Shiels and even Templeton. They will have had a look at some of the youth players as well who hopefully feel like they have a chance to break into the team.
  8. Likewise mate, I had never heard of him before today.
  9. A few people on Twitter linking us with a move for Mattersburg striker Markus Pink.
  10. I think STV are.
  11. He has had a lot of trouble with injuries since he left and as far as I'm aware he has only made 1 appearance on the bench and that was against Boro in the first leg of their playoff match.
  12. I remember reading somewhere when he signed last year that there was an extra year if we achieved promotion. If we do get promoted hopefully he doesn't take up that option.
  13. Allegri had some decent performances against Barcelona when he was at Milan and that Milan team were not as good as this current Juve team. The final should be a close game but I think Neymar, Suarez and Messi will see Barca over the line.
  14. I think Templeton is better through the middle behind the striker. I would imagine he will be sold in the summer for a couple hundred grand.
  15. I think Mohsni for McCulloch will be the only change. If Miller was RKO'd last night he might have to sit this one out as well.
